The London Bombings Relief Charitable Fund (LBRCF) has made donations of more than £8.2 million to the victims of the 7th July bomb attacks according to figures released by the fund yesterday.
Announcing the figures Gerald Oppenheim, Chair of fund’s Trustees said:
“Getting a measure of financial aid to the victims quickly and with the minimum of bureaucratic fuss has been our main concern from the day the Fund was set up.
Reaching the £8.2 million mark for grants paid out is pleasing because it means that the majority of the money donated in the months immediately after the bombings is now with victims of the attacks.”
Meanwhile, the Home Office has donated another £2.5 million to add to the £1 million donated by the government in July last year.
Welcoming the Government’s additional donation Mr Oppenheim said the money “is very welcome and means that we can do even more for the victims of 7/7. We are working on a new grant programme to distribute this money and we hope to start making charitable grants – especially to those who were most seriously affected – very soon.”
